  • New nursing associates case studies – HEE have published additional nursing associate case studies which highlight the experiences of registered and trainee roles in older adults community mental health, primary care, and a nursing home for adults with physical disabilities

 HEE recently published an update on the progress with the recently announced new qualification for staff working in critical care.
The qualification for nurses announced in March has been released for tender with education providers and system providers invited to bid to run a standardised critical care training programme from as early as September 2021

This new careers’ resource, which has been jointly developed by the Royal College of Nursing and HEE, to help registered nurses and the nursing support workforce across the UK plan their health careers effectively. The online resource is designed to provide you with a range of ideas about the varying roles that you can enjoy throughout your health and social care career. We hope this inspires and motivates you to proactively plan your next career move.

Trainee Nursing Associates and Nursing Associates bridge the gap between healthcare support workers and registered nurses. They can bring vital skills to primary care and work across PCNs as part of a multidisciplinary team. We interviewed Nursing Associate Michelle Nicholls about her career journey into general practice and why she would recommend recruiting the role to support general practice teams.
